OSCER users,


Register for the FREE Virtual Residency 2023 Summer
Introductory Workshop on Research Computing Facilitation
June 26 - 30 via Zoom!


We had over 100 registrations in the first 10 days!

And in addition to 440+ institutions that have already
participated, we've already got two dozen new institutions
that have registered for the first time!

(If you've already registered, or you've already told me that
you won't be able to participate, please feel free to
ignore this, or to forward it to anyone who might be interested
and appropriate ....)

The workshop webpage is here:




Virtual Residency 2023 Summer Workshop on
INTRODUCTORY Research Computing Facilitation

Mon June 26 (morning) - Fri June 30 (midday) 2023
Remote via Zoom only

There's NO PREREQUISITE other than an interest in helping
researchers with their computing-intensive/data-intensive

(Participation in any previous Virtual Residency workshop
is ***NOT*** REQUIRED.)

Please feel free to forward this to anyone who may be
interested and appropriate.


Does your institution have lots of researchers and educators
who want to use advanced computing, but need some help
learning how?

You or someone at your institution can learn to be
more effective at helping researchers and educators
use research computing!

This is a great way to get better at a career in
helping researchers use research computing.

It's also a great way to meet a community of fellow
research computing facilitators.


The Virtual Residency Program has already served:

1300+ people from 440+ institutions in all 50 US states and
4 US territories plus 16 other countries on 6 continents,

* 67 Minority Serving Institutions (15% of VRP institutions,
18% of 4+ year MSIs, 10% of all MSIs);

* 123 non-PhD-granting institutions, including 4 community colleges
and 3 high schools (27% of VRP institutions);

* 118 institutions in all 28 EPSCoR jurisdictions
(27% of VRP institutions);

* 281 of 353 Campus Champion institutions (67% of
VRP institutions, 80% of Campus Champion institutions).

And, 78% of VRP institutions have had participants
who collectively have participated in VRP activities
multiple times, and 67% of VRP institutions have had
participants who collectively have participated in
multiple types of VRP activities.

Taking into account institutions already served by the
Virtual Residency and institutions that are scheduled to
be served by this coming summer's workshop:

* in the latest Carnegie Classification ratings:
-- 128 of 131 (98%) of R1 institutions (Carnegie Very High
Research Activity),
-- 86 of 135 (64%) of R2 institutions (Carnegie High
Research Activity), including 57 of 80 R2 institutions (71%)
that have centralized on-campus research computing resources;

* in the latest US News rankings of national universities
(some percentages are based on multi-way ties):
-- all institutions in the US News Top 25
(5.8% of VRP institutions);
-- all but 2 institutions in the US News Top 50
(12% of VRP institutions, 96% of US News Top 50 institutions);
-- 86 institutions in the US News Top 100
(20% of VRP institutions, 88% of US News Top 100 institutions);
-- 130 institutions in the US News Top 150
(29% of VRP institutions, 81% of US News Top 150 institutions);
-- 152 institutions in the US News Top 200
(34% of VRP institutions, 76% of US News Top 200 institutions);
-- 177 institutions in the US News Top 250
(40% of VRP institutions, 68% of US News Top 250 institutions).

(This takes into account all of the Virtual Residency
activities: workshops in 2015-21, a couple of mini-workshops
run separately by the U California system, the Virtual
Residency workshop planning calls, the Grant Proposal Writing
Apprenticeship, the Paper Writing Apprenticeship, the
Grant Running Apprenticeship, and preregistrations for the
2023 workshop.)

Clarifying, since this question has come up in the past:

You *DON'T* have to participated in ANY past Virtual Residency
event (including this year's workshop planning calls),
NOR in Campus Champions NOR Campus Research Computing Consortium
(CaRCC) efforts, in order to participate in the
2023 Virtual Residency workshop -- though of course everyone in
those groups are encouraged to participate!
